alphabet day

Posted by Daniela Elza on May 24 2016

There is one thing I can always celebrate with a clear conscience and enthusiasm. That is the day of the alphabet, the day of the written word. Bulgarians celebrate the written word on May 24th each year.
I can delight in such a celebration the way I delight in spring blossoms. daniela on False creek in awe of purple bush
The way each bloom accumulates to display the splendour of the whole bush, the same way each letter, each word accumulates to display a big thought, a big heart, a big idea.

So, happy alphabet day.
Read a poem.
Buy a book.
Read something to inspire you today.
Write to someone. Write something for yourself. Do whatever it is you do to celebrate the miracle of the written word. Can you imagine a world without written language today? Spend some time imagining that too.
Here is for the moments of beauty, love, and awe we can share through words.

    I’ve never heard of Alphabet Day until now, but, as I library clerk, what a lovely idea! It should surpass Victoria Day in popularity.

    Yes, it is a lovely celebration. The schools do all sorts of literary connections. There is song, and poetry, and dance etc. At least from what I remember way back.
